Organic Loose Leaf Tea Etc.

Lisa has been working on learning all kinds of new things. Since January of 2012, she has been learning about and selling loose leaf organic teas and tea accessories. The gift shop was emptied out to make room for loose leaf teas that can't deal with the fragrances of soaps and lotions. The soap and lotion making has taken a back seat to baking and tea blending and packaging. The gift shop was moved and attached to the coffee roasterie. North Fork Gifts is now Baker Road Bakery and Specialtea Teas. About a year ago Tim purchased Jernabi's, a coffee shop, in Potsdam. Lisa now does all of the baking for the shop, runs the B&B and sells loose leaf teas. It's been a very exciting and sometimes very trying first year of retirement. It has been an unparalelled  learning experience to say the least. During this time the B&B website was also rebuilt and the blogging came to a screeching hault. As I struggle to make a schedule that makes sense and is doable, I long to return to blogging which is why I'm doing this post. So, hopefully, I'm back at it and can keep people informed about the happenings here at North Fork B&B.
We are looking forward to the upcoming Bass Masters Fishing Tournament and hoping to have some of the participants stay with us. Tim and I will both be at the 3 day event. Tim will be selling brewed hot coffee, iced coffee and iced tea. I will be selling baked goods and organic loose leaf tea and tea accessories. So if you go to the tournament, please do stop by and say hello! Look for more blog posts too!
